Today we have health/fitness trainer, Alana Mears hooking it up with the chocolate cake recipe. The secret to bonding with your kid! The best thing about all of this is, this chocolate recipe is healthy. So for those of you that like chocolate, or know somebody that does, this is it! Just remember to eat in moderation;-)
5 minutes to create a quick snack
It’s chocolate time!
As most of you know – Jeremie has a serious problem with sugar. However that is not uncommon among high-performance athletes.
Still, he doesn’t run as much as he used to [sorry J!] and therefore my sister [his wife] is always looking for ways to entice him to consume less sugar but still satisfy his sugar cravings.
Well here it is – and it’s a great, quick fix for after late games when everyone is tired but you want to visit or need to get in some food – you can fuel the body and the soul without the calories or sugar spike!
Chocolate protein mug cake
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp date sugar [or Stevia]
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1/8 cup unsweetened almond mild
Stir all together in a microwaveable mug, microwave for 1-2 minutes…
Watch and stop when you see it starting to fall over out of the top.
Just push the top back down into the mug a bit [although I put a pate underneath just in case of a mess].
Serve with 1 tbsp of almond butter on the side for perfection 🙂
*Alana Mears is a crazy-person and too over-the-top into nutrition and training. She is the toughest trainer I ever met and must be good since she trains pro athletes, college kids, body builders, cops, and me – her brother-in-law. :p
As a sports parent, it’s refreshing to learn how bonding with your kid can be making chocolate cake – that’s healthy:)
